Hello, I'm posting here because I need help from you.
Here's a background.
I dropped out of college first thing due to depression. I was a bum for several years, seeing a psychiatrist before I decided to get up and try to do something, I took a big interest in psychology because of this experience.
However it was too late for me to start college, I'm going to be 22 this august.
Anyway, I come from a really poor family, and I've no A levels. I saw that the open university has no requirements, so I did a course there for a year. It was kinda underwhelming, and the non-social aspect of it was soul crushing, I wanted to get out and change and this did not help at all.
What can I do to get into a uni? I've no idea where I can start. I live in London.
Want to go to a real university. Watch

Honestly? The open uni is your best bet.

What sort of course at the OU? might be worth ringing some universities and seeing if they'd accept that first.
The Access to HE diploma is designed for people without traditional qualifications (A levels) who want to go to university http://www.accesstohe.ac.uk/Pages/Default.aspx

I agree with JoinedUp, as long as you didn't do the stupid OU access module, there is a good chance that a university will accept your OU course as an alternative qualification to A levels. Failing that, an Access to HE course is your best bet. There is a lot of information regarding Access courses in this thread: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3401311
